Babich Marlborough Pinot Gris 2012

Pinot Gris from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Jan-2013
Brilliant straw-yellow colour, pale on rim. The bouquet is light with subtle aromas of yellow stonefruits, along with notes of pears and savoury, nutty, honeysuckle elements. Dryish to taste, this is elegant and up-front with flavours of stonefruits, pears and honey that show some sweetness and richness. The mouthfeel is rounded, with a little alcohol warmth adding to the body and generosity. Discreet acidity and fine, soft textures provide a good line which leads to a rounded, dry finish. This is a rounded Pinot Gris with some subtly rich honeysuckle flavours. Serve with Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the company's vineyards in Marlborough fermented to 14.0% alc. and 2.8 g/L rs, with 15% in seasoned oak and given lees stirring. 17.0-/20 Jan 2013 RRP $20.00
